Turbine Demonstration Project

SINGAPORE

Introduction

DEMONSTRATING THE POTENTIAL OF TIDAL ENERGY IN SOUTH EAST ASIA

In June 2017 Mako Tidal Turbines commenced research in

Singapore into performance of its MAKO.4 tidal energy turbine.

The Singapore research program follows successful testing of

the earlier model MAKO on Sydney Harbour and the Tamar River

in Tasmania, Australia where valuable data collected played a key

role in the development of the MAKO .4 turbine.

Singapore was selected because of its government’s active support for hosting and nurturing the development of renewable energy, availability of suitable tidal flow and its proximity to Asian markets.

An engineering team from MAKO Energy Pte Ltd, in conjunction with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore, established a test site on infrastructure for the iconic Sentosa walkway precinct.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next phase of our Singapore Demonstration Project commenced in November 2018 with the signing of a Collaboration Agreement with the Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC).

In conjunction with SDC and other partners, MAKO Energy will work to select a suitable site in the Sentosa region and establish a demonstration site to show the potential for tidal energy to broaden and improve the energy mix and sites all around South East Asia.
